Easter week in Latvia.
Many such straw figures as this rabbit could be found in public places. This one is in a central park in Riga.

And here in the same Riga Park an Easter nest with two Cranes (or maybe Herons) standing in the distance.

This jolly rabbit was found in the Latvian town of Sigulda.

Here is a market in the square of the old town of Kaunas (Lithuania) on Easter Sunday morning.

Juris and I attended a delightful Easter Saturday service in the modern (1930s) chuch in the Upper town of Kaunas where the lighting of candles was made. One week later we attended a similar service for Orthodox Easter at the Vladimir Church in St Petersburg.

Numerous other Easter services were 'popped into' during our Double Easter visit.
